Windradyne, the famous and feared warrior of the Wiradjuri nation, visits Parramatta to meet with Governor Thomas Brisbane. The Sydney Gazette (using the British name for him of Saturday) write of him:

He is one of the finest looking natives we have seen in this part of the country. He is not particularly tall, but is much stouter and more proportionably limbed than the majority of his countrymen; which, combined with a noble looking countenance, and piercing eye, are calculated to impress the beholder with other than disagreeable feelings towards a character who has been so much dreaded by the Bathurst settler. Saturday is, without doubt, the most manly black native we have ever beheld---a fact pretty generally acknowledged by the numbers that saw him.”
